    Turkey Brined with pops brine.

    Im guessing Pops may chime in, a week might be overkill, Id say 4 maybe 5 days, depends if you inject it I suppose. If I remember he did say it depends on the size? a smallish, say 14 pounder may get cured through in 3 or 4 days.

    Dry cure question

    Dont sweat it, after a few days as moisture begins to be pulled out the cure will mix with the juice and by the time you are done will basically be bathing in the cure mixture. Good Luck!

    Pellet smoker VS Bradley smoker?

    Question about cure and taste

    Personally I put cure in all sausage I make, Including my Brats, and no I dont smoke my brats. I feel "shelf life" in the freezer is longer when cure is in the mix. Try out a small batch of Brats with cure in some time, I really like the color when grilled and they taste great.
